Hello Wednesday and hello to all of you! Halfway there people and that’s a good thing. The rest of this week is going to be busy! I’m going into Manhattan tonight and then tomorrow we have a golf fundraiser at work and I will be there from 8:00am until 11:00pm, then back at work at 7:00am on Friday. Like I said busy!! Crafting time will be shortened but I will still squeeze some in, I need my balance!
Today’s post – Paper Craft Crew Sketch 48…
Simple sketch with a lot of possibilities. The base of my card is Chocolate Chip Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of paper from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Pack. The middle panel is made up of a piece of Chocolate Chip, a piece of Calypso Coral that I cut out with the Finishing Touches Edgelits Dies and a piece of Whisper White that I stamped in Chocolate Chip with the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. A pice of Whisper White 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon goes around the lower half and some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold it to the base. The greeting and the hat are from the Sketched Birthday Stamp Set, the greeting is cut out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies and my Paper Snips cut out the hat. I’m really liking the “sketched” look of the stamps and the Calypso Coral and Chocolate Chip make a nice color combo. Thank you, as always, for coming by to see my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch challenge. Head on over to the blog to see what my fellow designers have for inspiration and enter one of your creations in the gallery. Have yourselves a very nice Wednesday!
